I really loved this show. The night was glorious. Great Sacramento weather, and the MOON which came out for the encore of Black Muddy River was pretty sweet. Added to a magical evening of outstanding music. The lead-in to Victim was drug out (as was I) and a little longish, which made for a trippy start to the second set. When that dude flew up onto the stage during Watchtower he was obviously really really "feeling it". Looked like he was trying to touch Jerry's guitar but that roadie was fast acting. Kind of a drag when people do that sort of thing. I read that post here from somebody claiming to be his friend. {{{{sigh}}}} Like I said, kind of a drag when somebody does something like that. Still, this was a pretty amazing show. Absolutely deserves the five stars it showed itself to be that warm and weird night by the river in Sacramento.

Flawless, all of them. Shows where Brent was as a musician. And to the guy that gave the show one star because his "buddy" was a j@ckass, thanks.

Man I would have loved it if Jerry put that smackdown on that degenerate.

Wow...this really is some of the best stuff from '90. The inconsistency during the last ten years of the band makes it that much more fun to hunt for the jems.

After listening to every second of this show I just want to say that all the half dead wankers who say there was no magic in the end years- kiss my white hairy ass!

This show is something else. Every bit as good as any 70s show. This is the work of clear MASTERS. You can really hear the grace of the old hands with their tools just slaying the songs with a strength bred on familiarity! And I think this show is a 5 no doubt, but I'm going to make sure there isn't one notch higher by trying 6/10.... oh and 6/8 too!

Thanks for the stories. Pretty pretty amusing !)

Peace

Subject: Not 6/10 but still awesome
I'm a lucky fella to have gone to these 3 all the way from NYC. I think Cal Expo was sharper and better played than the Shoreline run myself.

This show features solid 1st and 2nd sets. Sound quality of the matrix boards from Cal Expo 90 are some of the finest recordings of the Dead ever. Absolute desert island discs.

The run peaks the next night with one of the best shows I've ever heard from any era. But this one is mighty fine too! 4 stars for the show, 5 stars for the SBD. Since they can't be downloaded in WAV format anymore, I would suggest streaming the show onto a recordable CDR.

Whoever rated this show a 1 and is friendly with the nutcase that tried to attack Jerry ought to have their "review" EXTRACTED FROM THIS ARCHIVE.

This was a 5 star show from 90 and one of the best setlists of the summer. The vibe at the show was excellent.

This matrix sounds very nice.

Subject: Yeah i remember that
That was a friend of mine that went after Jerry like that. He was trying to "merge" with him. (his words)
He made several attempts at this, the last being the jerry riot Warfield shows of 92. In this case it was during the Maker...my friend lept to the stage at Jerry during "Jean Baptiste, coming to me me with the Maker" my friend ran at Jerry attempting "merge" with him--security grabbed him by each arm. the doors to 6th street were opened they tossed him out, doors shut. Jerry appeared a lil shaken and then repeated the Jean Baptiste line...

...the crazed dude come up out of the crowd and make a beeline for Jerry during Watchtower?

One of the roadies at the side of the stage saw him coming and bolted across the stage just in time to deliver a world class Warren Sapp tackle just inches from Jerry...

then Jerry just stepped back with raised eyebrows and launched into a particularly nasty section of his solo....great stuff..

Quality shows, the whole run...for me, the last of the best...saw about 50 from 1983-94, and the post-Brent shows didn't quite cut it for me.

Subject: Set one is a hot one
This show is one of the best from the 90 summer run. The stranger is one of the finest I have ever heard. followed by a sweet Peggy-O. Me& my Uncle-> Mexicali are are energetic, followed by a powerful Loser. The Loose Lucy rocks,Jerry lets it rip at the end. A rockin Cassidy-> dont Ease close the set. On a 1-10 scale, 10 High, this first set gets a 9.
